why this could be a tough state for romney. >> all right, in toledo, ohio tonight, thank you. >>> we're learning more about the attack on the american consulate in benghazi, libya, which killed a u.s. ambassador and three other americans. the obama administration says it was a planned terrorist attack, and the fbi is investigating a possible al qaeda link, and an issue that secretary of state hillary clinton discussed today. meanwhile, ann curry sat down with the president of libya to discuss the situation. >> reporter: would you call the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi an act of terrorism? >> i have no doubt about that. and it is a pre-planned act of terrorism directed against american citizens. >> reporter: you're confirming that rpgs were used in the original attack? >> mortars -- >> reporter: they were used in the attack? >> yes. >> reporter: and do you know how many mortars were used? >> about 500. >> reporter: and you were saying they were fired with such accuracy that this could not have been done by somebody who didn't have experience? >> experience and knew what he
's base. where is mitt romney today? springfield, virginia right outside of washington, d.c. northern virginia, that area, is really obama territory. and here we are in virginia beach. this is not obama territory. and i think one thing that shows that is actually we're here at at the farm bureau live. the band that will be performing next here because this is a music venue is the zac brown band which performed at the republican national convention, something that struck me. but they're trying to cut into each other's margins. president obama did pretty well in virginia beach narrowly losing virginia beach county to john mccain. this is a strong veteran area which normally goes for republicans. mitt romney has to win here and president obama is here trying to make sure that it and virginia are out of his reach. >> so when you say mitt romney has to win here, what do the newspapers say so far, how have the polls been looking and where do they stand today? >> well, right now what we're looking at according to our latest cnn poll of polls, which is considering a lot of polls and averaging
of opportunity for romney to come back. the only point i'm trying to make is right now, and remember polls are a snapshot of what's happening right now, right now obama clearly is ahead in these key battleground states. that's very significant. it can have a demoralizing impact on a lot of republicans and a lot of republican money from that perspective as you point out. but at the same time, it can make the democrats overconfident. they may decide, you know what, he doesn't need anymore money, he's doing just fine. or i don't have to show up and vote because the president's going to win. so there's a two edged sword to being ahead or behind at this point in the polls. this race is continuing. it's by no means over. anybody who says it's over is being ridiculous. >> and speaking of the '80s, i actually started my career in the '80s, although i love that compliment from you. >> you look much younger than that. >> you can be on every day. thank you, wolf blitzer. >>> the election's close, debates are even closer. the first debate is next wednesday night, cnn special coverage starts 7:00 p.m.
romney appeared >> -- then governor romney. >> right now, you're trying to get a sales tax increase to pay for pre-k. can you defend, sitting next to someone who does not like texas famously, the decision to brought to market with a tax increase even for something you so strongly believe in? many mayors are with you, but there are a lot of elected officials and san antonio who are not with you. >> basically, i fundamentally believe that brainpower is the currency of success. in the 21st century global economy. those communities that created will be the communities that thrive in our market economy. and those communities that do not will be the ones who fall behind. san antonio, i believe, needs to make a huge investment in education. that investment is not limited to more money. it also means getting parents involved. it also means expecting more from everybody along whole education ecosystem, from administrators to policy-makers to teachers come expecting more out of everyone. so what i have on the table in san antonio is basically a 1/8 cent sales tax that will cost the median hou
. thank you! >> all right. we're watching mitt romney there in springfield, virginia. only 40 days until the election. president obama we're also watching for as well. he's also in virginia, expected to speak in virginia beach moments from now. you see the podium there. virginia, a very important swing state. 13 electoral votes in that state. the recent polls now showing that president obama is slightly, slightly ahead of romney in the state. the last cnn poll of polls for virginia, he was leading 50% to romney's 44%. you might recall back in 2008 president obama won virginia and became the first democrat since 1964, lyndon johnson to actually win that state and that was significant. i'll bring in jim acosta who is traveling with mitt romney. he's at the event talking a little bit about the message we heard from mitt romney. clearly it's important for him to reach the working class. that came in some of the comments he made regarding trade with china. what does he need to do? what does his team think they need to do to make sure he holds on to virginia? >> reporter: suzanne, as you know,
it is the romney campaign loses florida, their chances of winning the 2012 election are close to zero i think. and right now this point the obama campaign is running a little bit ahead in florida by several points, according to the latest polls. if we look at the pattern of support among groups like hispanics, we look at the patter of support among groups like the white working-class where again you see the best group for romney, mccain carried in by 17 points in 2008. we look at the breakout and we are not seeing any progress being made among these voters. we are not saying a noticeably bigger margin among white working-class voters for the gop candidate. it's not happening. the margins look to be pretty similar to what they were in 2008. so by and large not much progress is being made by the romney campaign. in virginia we see again some demographic change happening there on the right with white working-class going down and white college graduates going up. and again in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would have been to widen the margin that you be candidate was going to get among
that governor romney switch that momentum as that voting continues wolf, 40 days right up to election day. >> everyone agrees, john, iowa very much in play right now, right? >> reporter: yes. it's one of the states -- we have nine states we call toss-ups. this is one of them. seven of those nine states allow some form of in person early voting. iowa is still in play, but iowa is one of those states that have drifted a bit in the president's favor. and, again, this is a state where republicans did very well in 2010. they believe they have some energy on the ground. but they've watched the last ten days, wolf, if you talk to them privately, they're not happy with the romney strategy. they're not happy with the romney advertisements. and they think first and foremost he must have a very, very strong debate on the question of which candidate can better handle the economy. they say he must do that in that first week of october to turn the tide here. >> all right. john will be joining us later in "the situation room" as well. thanks, john, very much. >>> today we learned the president plans a f

is right-wing. with that said, i want to talk about iran. mitt romney he doesn't have any reason to run for president, his life is made. he is collected $20 million a year doing absolutely nothing. he doesn't have a reason to run for president. he's not trying to help the people, ease shelby specially the poor why is he running? for rich people. the israel guy is going to tell him go to iron and he is going to go to iran. he doesn't have any backbone. he goes which ever the way the wind blows. hey he's going to go to war with iran. he whatever the donors tell him. what do you think? >> guest: thank you for your questions. firsten 0 the media. i have departmented a healthy respect for the media. our system of government couldn't work without them. i think we are lucky to have them. on governor romney, all i can say he's been a successful person in whatever he's done. he's had a successful business career, he was -- i think he was a good governor of mississippi in many ways. i live in massachusetts. but my own point of view, he's had a tough presidential campaign. he has 47% mark was dama
electoral votes. susan mcginnis has more. >> reporter: president obama and mitt romney are following each other from one battleground state to another. on wednesday ohio was their target. >> you probably are aware that there's an election going on right now in ohio. >> i believe you're going to help me win ohio, i'll tell you that. >> reporter: today it's a quick flight to virginia for rallies there. >> we're a compassionate people. >> reporter: on wednesday romney tried to convey a more empathetic candidate. >> we have people who are hurting. we have people who are disabled and people who are poor. they need our help and they receive our help. we're a charitable people. >> reporter: recent polls show romney trailing the president on the question of which candidate cares about my needs. but time is running out for governor romney to change voters' minds. early voting is under way in about two dozen states. it starts today in iowa and next week in ohio. that has both campaigns stepping up their advertising in key swing states. >> we should measure compassion by how many people are able to
. we told you about the brand new poll showing that that man in swing state of ohio is amitt romney by 10 percent. but are they really swinging toward the president? or is there skewing going on by the left-based main stream med yampt a number of people on the right feel that there is something, a polster media polling bias and what they do, they sample more democrats than republicans and naturally the democrats will wind up with the vote. why will they do that? one perhaps to keep mitt romney's donors from coughing up more cash and keep people from doing early voting. >> gretchen: the idea is why do they weight it one way to the other. they base it on the turn out in the last election cycles. they see more democrats came to the polls they weight it to democrats as opposed to the republicans and defendants. >> steve: what about 2010 and the land slide with the republicans winning be you when mr. obama had a highly motivated base of young people and latinos? which model do you follow. >> brian: we'll listen to karl rove and then we'll talk. >> when news agencies like the cbs news rep
is you lose time and if you want to switch to a sports analogy, right f obama leads by a touchdown, so to speak, in the first quarter it doesn't mean much. but we are in the fourth quarter and romney just maybe fumbled giving obama interception again. nothing impossible but you need a couple of good breaks. >> many predictions fail. nate silver, thank you. >>> coming up, celebrity, power, success and the importance of helping others. my all-star panel at the clinton global initiative.

[ male announcer ] make the switch. take action. take advil®. and if pain keeps you up, sleep better with advil® pm. and if pain keeps you up, romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters"
developed, believe it or not, populist appeal. he's not, i think, by nature a populist, nor is mitt romney. i call obama the elite of education and romney the elite of wealth. but when it comes to personal appeal to voters, obama is clearly ahead right now as you can see from the figures. and if you look at the job approval ratings, the latest job approval ratings on page 2 all are 50% or higher, which is the critical threshold for a president who's running for re-election. and on the back page you'll find the latest senate rankings where democrats have picked up some momentum. today we're talking about national security, and in about an hour, little over, i think the president will be addressing the united nations. so, um, this could not be timelier. we have three guests, all of whom have had pentagon positions in the obama administration, and i believe you're all on the national security advisory committee for the re-election campaign? so you're political as well as foreign policy experts. i'm going to introduce them one at a time, and then as i introduce them, i am going to put a questi
ohio is to winning the white house. but right now president obama has the edge there. ohio is the center of the political universe. >> i love toledo, ohio. >> hello, ohio! >> reporter: it was a buckeye state brawl between president obama and mitt romney. >> i am not fighting to create democratic jobs or republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> you want four more years with 23 million people struggling to find a job? >> reporter: in ohio election day is really election five weeks. starting next tuesday voters can cast their ballots. presidential contenders are working furiously to lock down support now. right now it is the president who has the clear edge. abc news moved ohio from the tossup column to lean obama. that puts the president within 15 electoral votes of the 270 he needs to win re-election. ohio has been trending obama for weeks. one new poll has him up 10 points. but, a senior romney adviser seemed to suggest their own polling shows a much tighter race. and that's why they're still fighting for ohio's 18 oral o but soon the ro be forced to decide
.s. is not completely above reproach, he usually balance it with praise for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to europe, latin america, to the muslim world during his first months in office, no indications were he had said the nation had made mistakes. in most of those cases, the context was a call for better relations with other countries after which he described as damage done by misguided moves by his predecessor, bush. so we fact check that. again, it did not seem to make a difference to the campaign. earlier this month, when that violence broke out at u.s. diplomatic outposts in libya and egypt. romney jumped to accuse obama of di
